Jenna,
I worked with you years ago at American HomePatient and had the opportunity to meet your dad when you and Brett got married. What a happy, and excited Dad you had! He was so proud of you and so delighted about your wedding! I remember a very wonderful reception, with lots of laughter and tears of joy. I know you loved your dad very much and will miss him terribly. My sympathies to you and the rest of your family. Sue

To the family of Bobby Joe Shepperd,

My name is Timothy Lane and I worked with Bobby at Jagged Peak. Seems hard to believe that he is gone. I always enjoyed working with him and helping with his orders. He is the one I started working for when I started with this company 16 years ago. But he was always helpful in every aspect. My prayers are with the family in this time of loss. My love to you all. God bless.

Pat, Please know that our prayers are with you at this time of sorrow. There is no way to prepare for the days ahead but he is with you in your heart. Love Always Johnnie & Graham
